“And Jesus answered and said to them, Because of the hardness of your heart he wrote you this precept.”
Mark 10:5 NKJB
Yes, Jesus was talking about divorce here, but many of our problems come from the hardness of our hearts! We take a stance and decide we will not change whether we are right or wrong! Understand we don’t always have to be right!
“But by your stubbornness, by your unrepentant heart, you are storing up anger for yourself on the Day of Anger, when God’s righteous judgment will be revealed.”
Romans 2:5 CJB
Most arguments and disagreements come from stubbornness and having a hard heart! We say things like “it’s got” to be my way or the highway or understand “I’m” always right, but what does that get you: loneliness!
“He who conceals his sins will not succeed; he who confesses and abandons them will gain mercy.”
Proverbs 28:13 CJB
Don’t hold onto things that bind you, making you bitter! Check and see what is in your heart, is it soft or is it hard?
“A time to search and a time to give up, a time to keep and a time to discard.”
Ecclesiastes 3:6 CJB
Today, search your heart. Are you holding onto something that has you bound up? That makes you hard and is keeping you from a relationship or holding you back! Give it up, let it go and call on the LORD! Have a blessed day searching your heart and letting go of the things that bind you! Remember, we don’t always have to be right!
